Last-Minute Christmas Centerpiece Ideas TAKE THE CAKE

Begin by setting out some favorite glass pieces where they can catch the holiday lights. Then

haul out the holly, trims and imagination to create sparkling table toppers in a twinkling!

Hosting a gala dinner for family and friends? Red and white tea roses, covered or uncovered,

crown a cake stand in dazzling holiday style.

Here’s how: Place wet floral foam on top of cake stand. Cut rose stems to 3 inches. Insert

stems into foam, covering entire surface. Fill spaces with greenery. Add luster with tiny gold

gift boxes and a swirl of mini lights and gold mesh.

Or welcome guests with a merry trio of ruby goblets a-shine with quiet candlelight and tucked

in holly sprays. Brighten any buffet with a hurricane vase wreathed in colorful berries and

studded with sparkly red and green pears. Fill with a pillar candle and potpourri or

cranberries and popcorn to convey: It’s clearly Christmas!
